---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to Serbia!
 
Serbia is a safe country, Belgrade is a safe city. The Serbs love Jews, and there is no anti-Semitism. You can walk around the street with a kippa without fear. As in all cities, just beware of pickpockets who can try to take money without you noticing.

Transportation to the city
Private driver:
Reliable English-speaking driver: Mr. Aleks.
Phone number / Whatsapp: + 381-693571234

You have to coordinate with him in advance.

Prices For each direction:
4- car seat: $ 25
7- car seat: $ 40
You can pay him in US dollars.

Taxi:
It is recommended to take a taxi from the airport. the estimated cost for each direction is $18 but you can only pay in local currency – Serbian Dinar. You can convert dollars to local currency at the airport. The conversion rate at the airport is high so it is advisable to convert only the necessary amount for a taxi and to convert the rest in the city. There is a money change location in every corner of the city.

Pay attention! You should only take a taxi from the official station where there is a large taxi sign at the airport. local drivers will offer you a taxi please don’t go with them as they will charge you an excessive price. Again, just go to the official station!

Accommodation
You can feel secure with any hotel on Booking.com or Airbnb.

Chabad apartment:
You can rent our beautiful newly renovated apartment in Chabad House. There are only 2 rooms and each room has 2 beds. Its suitable for a maximum of 4 people. Price for one room: 40 Euro. Price for 2 rooms 80 Euro. For more information and reservations click on this link.

For recommended hotels in the city center close to the Chabad House please click here.

Kosher food:
Please note! Belgrade has no kosher restaurant or shop. even if Google redirects you to “kosher restaurants”, they are not kosher at all!!!
Chabad provides kosher dinners at 7:30pm by reservations only. Please send requests within 2 weeks of your visit. For information and pre-order click here.
Breakfast and lunch can be ordered for groups of 10 or more by sending a request within 2 weeks of your visit.

Minyanim:
Usually there is no Minyan on weekdays, but sometimes when there is a group of guests we make a minyan at the Chabad House for Mincha and Arvit.

We recommend that you send us a message two days in advance to see if there is a chance for a Minyan. Also, if you see a lot of Jews on your flight, you can arrange with them and schedule a prayer time at the Chabad House.

Tour guides:
Belgrade is a beautiful and interesting city with a fascinating Jewish history. there are many Jewish tour guides in Belgrade who will be happy to take you on a tour.

Here is a list of recommended Jewish tour guides.
Mr. Yoel Simhony – Phone Number +381-60-550-7150. E-mail: office@noatours-serbia.com

For what it's worth, my full refunds from trip.com posted for 24 hour cancellation. It was annoyingly complex, and lesson learned about relying on this for fly-by-night OTAs.

I booked for 4/6-4/19 through Chase. Air Serbia said their system doesn't let them put in meal preference or voucher for hotel (which they usually provide for long stopovers) due to the way chase issued the ticked (not their ticket number starting with 115).

Does anyone know a work around?

When booking with Air Serbia, are there any partner airlines worth earning miles with?

Anyone have any information on how far keresir is from Belgrade? I’ve been getting conflicting reports when I google it.
Use simple google maps, obviously, it depends on the time and which route you take, see below link.

https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Belgrade+Nikola+Tesla+Airport,+Belgrade,+Serbia/Bodrogkereszt%C3%BAr,+3916+Hungary/@46.4756469,18.314354,7z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x475a688a5214cf59:0xc3184c4bc7f300f9!2m2!1d20.291691!2d44.820498!1m5!1m1!1s0x4738ad447758d9dd:0x2e966f614d9aeda4!2m2!1d21.3595899!2d48.1630176!3e0

Dont forget to take into account the wait at the border (if any). If it is anything like going from Ukraine to Hungary, it can take hours

Are you going 4/06? If yes I would be interested in making a shachris in the Airport.

For the long stop over on the way back is it worth renting a car there or taking a shuttle / Cab...

Chabad has a center with a Shul on the first floor, the Kaminetzkys (the shluchim) are special people.

Chabad Serbia told me:

1) Tel Aviv Hummus House is not kosher at all.
2) Usually they are closed on Sunday, but if many people request dinner from them, then they will serve dinner.  They said to follow up about a week in advance.
